Writer, actor and director Marcus Ewert will be joining us here at Books Inc. on Market Street for a signing and reading of his new kids book "10,000 Dresses." Also appearing with Marcus will be graphic designer and fine artist Rex Ray, the illustrator of "10,000 Dresses." About the book: Every night, Bailey dreams about magical dresses: dresses made of crystals and rainbows, dresses made of flowers, dresses made of windows. Unfortunately, when Bailey's awake, no one wants to hear about these beautiful dreams. Quite the contrary: "You're a BOY!" Mother and Father tell Bailey. "You shouldn't be thinking about dresses at all." Then Bailey meets Laurel, an older girl who is touched and inspired by Bailey's imagination and courage. In friendship, the two of them begin making dresses together. And Bailey becomes the girl she always dreamed she'd be! This gorgeous picture book-a modern fairy tale about becoming the person you feel you are inside, will delight people of all ages. About the authors: Marcus Ewert co-created the hit animated series, Piki & Poko: Adventures in StarLand, currently being shown on MTV's LOGO channel. He is writing a memoir about his time with Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs. He lives in San Francisco.

His work is collected by SF MoMA and exhibited around the US. * * * Books Inc. is a locally owned and operated independent bookseller with 10 locations in California. Books Inc.'s origin dates back to the Gold Rush Days of 1851 when Anton Roman struck it rich in Shasta City, California and set himself up in business selling books. That small bookstore was moved, bought, sold, burned, rebuilt, renamed and became Books Inc., as we know it today, in 1946. Today, with 10 Stores and 200 employees, Books Inc. serves as a shining example that independent bookselling can survive and prosper, even if we must dance among the elephants.
